Frank Monte is currently pursuing a career in law because of his fervent desire to be better than the status quo. Rather than charge clients outrageous retainer’s fees and only half-heartedly pursue justice on their behalf, Frank Monte looks to utilize his work ethic, honesty and intelligence to add real value to his client’s lives; to provide each individual the complete and dedicated representation they deserve while passionately pursing the results they need to become whole again. Monte is committed to being much more than your run-of-the-mill legal professional.
Building an enterprise, as Frank Monte knows, is a big deal. The act of putting your heart and soul into something you believe in, and enabling that entity with the leadership and resources it needs not only to survive, but to thrive, is one that (most) entrepreneurs do not take lightly; particularly as many have invested their entire livelihoods in making that business successful.
A successful small business owner and serial entrepreneur, Frank Monte knows not just how to launch a business successfully, but to ensure it’s firing on all cylinders at all times. Doing so, as he knows, requires:
- Really Knowing Your Firm. Sure, you aren’t an expert in everything; but if you don’t possess in-depth knowledge of those products/services your offering, as well as how your business is delivering those goods, it will be quite challenging to decide how and where best to take risks and grow.
- Overseeing All Expenses. Careful tracking, monitoring and assessment of all company expenses provides you the information you need to make the best financial decisions possible, and helps you eliminate unnecessary waste before it occurs.
Frank Monte is committed to the health and strength of his company and his community. This is one reason why he remains steadfast in his commitment to working with and hiring military veterans; professionals he knows provide an invaluable resource of dedication, diligence and loyalty, and that help strengthen his enterprise while providing the framework his firm needs to thrive well into the future.
For Frank Monte, hiring retired servicemembers is the right thing to do; not only as a way to support those who have put their lives on the line for their country, but as a way to tap into a vast, useful resource of professionals who know how to get the job done. Hiring military veterans provides employers the benefit of:
Adaptability. Veterans tend to have considerable experience adapting quickly to changing situations, particularly under extreme pressure.
Leadership. Those who have served tend to know how to take the reins when needed, and aren’t afraid to do what it takes to meet and exceed organizational objectives.
In 2012, Frank Monte was introduced to a cause that would forever change the direction of his life and his business. The owner of a local marketing firm, Frank Monte soon thereafter dedicated his company to helping small business owners recoup their losses following the 2010 BP Oil Spill; an event that wreaked havoc on the region and led to the financial distress and ruin of many throughout the Gulf Coast area.
Frank Monte, Centurion Founder, knows a thing or two about developing a successful enterprise. The Founder of a successful marketing firm, a successful real estate firm and a homeowners-assistance firm (Homeowner Answers, LLC), Monte has earned the reputation as a proven, serial entrepreneur; someone with the drive, passion, intelligence and work ethic needed not just to see his ideas come to fruition, but to transform them into commercial success stories.
A successful business, as Frank Monte of Centurion knows, is built on:
Without an authentic passion for the idea, service or product being offered, it’s hard to get an idea off the ground, much less to transform it into something commercially sustainable.
Successful companies aren’t built overnight. Weeks, months, even years of sweat, blood and tears are what turn companies into promising, sustainable enterprises.

A Reliable Workforce
It’s hard to launch an idea on one’s own, particularly when the competition is working hard to outpace and shut out any threats to their existence. Taking care to hire the right support team, one with the talent, ambition and dedication needed to see the company through to the next level, is essential to a successful operation.
Frank Monte, Centurion Founder, is a dedicated member of the community. A successful serial entrepreneur, Monte has leveraged his talent, business acumen and position in the community, and on more than one occasion, to help those in need. This was perhaps nowhere more evident than Monte’s role in the effort to recover financial compensation on behalf of local business owners affected by the devastation of 2010 BP Gulf Oil Spill.
There are many reasons, as Frank Monte of Centurion knows, for committing one’s time, energy and money to helping others. These include:
Personal Growth and Development
As Monte knows, philanthropy, no matter the size or scope of the individual’s contributions, can quickly become a source of personal development, opening the volunteer’s eyes to a larger world and demonstrating the need for compassion and support they previously didn’t know existed.
Creating a Stronger Community
Helping causes and in-need individuals in your local area helps to establish bonds and foster strength among members of your community, creating a more tight-knit local population more likely to stand together in the face of adversity.
Building a New Perspective
Volunteer opportunities have a habit of showing volunteers a whole new way of looking at things, enabling a stronger appreciation of situations and issues others are facing.
If you’re an undergraduate, and you’re beginning to seriously consider a career in the law, it’s never too early to begin preparation. Currently an undergraduate with law school aspirations, Frank Monte of Centurion is now taking steps to do just as much, and has developed an appreciation for the level of preparation, hard work and sheer will it takes to best equip oneself for the next academic level.
Frank Monte, Founder of Centurion and longtime success in the business community, is setting the foundation for a future in law, nearing ever closer to law school each and every day. As he knows, doing so adequately is a multi-layered undertaking, involving:
–Careful selection of the right undergraduate courses. While it’s true that law schools accept students who have majored in just about any subject that’s out there, those who have studied such subjects as philosophy, international relations and classics tend to fare a little better in law school curriculums than others.
–Refining your writing skills. Law school courses tend to be writing-intensive, so taking steps to practice and refine your skills can provide a much-needed leg up once you’ve reached the next level.
